Environmental Datasets

The pond environmental dataset station at the University of Toronto Mississauga

The Environmental Datasets represent measurements taken in 3 distinct environmental settings at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. The data are separated into pond, field and forest data. Data are collected at these sites using HOBO U30 data loggers equipped with sensors monitoring soil moisture, soil temperature, air temperature and relative humidity. Data are collected hourly and downloaded monthly.

Site locations on campus:

Each file contains the data from all three environmental dataset sites. The entire data set from September 2009 can be downloaded here.
